    According to Iomega, all it needs is a USB 1.1 connection to work with a Mac. Further clarification- they only guarantee that it will work with os9.x. With out the model number (a red flag) it is hard to say if it will work with OS X.

    If you look here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/compatibility/ it lists all the external cd/rw burners that work with iTunes...which also means they work with Maco OS X and disc burner. They have the USB predator drive listed so it seems as though it should work.
